My favorite desktop environment, by far. Beautiful, simple and productive. When Gnome 3 came out, I spent a good while wallowing in agony at the horrible choices and extreme lag until I discovered that Gnome 2 had been forked as MATE. :)

Many users of GNOME 2 dislike GNOME 3. MATE is a fork of the good old GNOME 2. It provides an intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional metaphors for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.

MATE is under active development to add support for new technologies while preserving a traditional desktop experience.

Enlightenment is not just a window manager for Linux/X11 and others, but also a whole suite of libraries to help you create beautiful user interfaces with much less work than doing it the old fashioned way and fighting with traditional toolkits, not to mention a traditional window manager
